Olympic Games: Paris & LA to host 2024 & 2028 respectively

14 September 2017

Both cities will be hosting their third Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) voted today and decided on Paris as the host of the 2024 Games and Los Angeles as the host of the 2028 Games.

The Coliseum and the new National Football League stadium in Inglewood are set to share duties for the opening and closing ceremonies, part of a "something old and something new" approach, as the Coliseum was the site of the ceremonies both in 1932 and 1984. A homeless man pushed a shopping cart past the black iron gates and a few people strolled by on their way to visit museums in Exposition Park south of downtown. "That was certainly the case for Athens and Barcelona (which hosted the 1992 Olympics)", Andreff said.

However, Paris refused to host the 2028 games and LA who initially refused has reached an agreement with the IOC. "It was good for both sides and that's where we ended up".

Mayor of Los Angeles Eric Garcetti celebrates LA being awarded the 2028 Games. "There wasn't a whole lot of suspense but it was a very special day", bid chairman Casey Wasserman told AFP. Bach will re-light the Olympic cauldron. The city points to its Olympic legacy to explain a almost unheard-of 83 percent approval rating in a self-commissioned poll - not an insignificant factor when the IOC picks a place to bring its crown-jewel event. "The momentum will build toward LA 2028".

Los Angeles has also obtained the right to exploit Olympic symbols for longer than usual, another factor that is likely to allow it to maximise revenues.

Los Angeles will also receive an immediate, interest-free advance of $180 million to help finance the costs of the organising committee for an additional four years. The state is expected to commit a similar amount.

International Olympic Committee official Dick Pound, who has been critical of Bach's handling of recent corruption and doping scandals, believes the movement can however have reason to celebrate after Wednesday's joint award. That, plus the additional years allotted due to the early announcement, gives the city plenty of time and opportunity to get themselves squared away by the time 2028 rolls around.

"I'll do everything I can to be on the mats", he said. "We are so excited.to reinvent the Games - and do this together with Paris".
